About Us


The IKF is an Israel-based Military, Security and Civilian training organisation offering specialist and bespoke training, as well as operational support to Governments, Corporate/VIP community. We educate and offer security protection through our global network of clubs and training facilities.


We are Israel’s leading specialist training provider for Military Units, Law Enforcement, Security Teams, Close Protection Officers and Civilians.

Since foundation in 1948, Israel has been in a constantly state of alert. Defending its borders both from its neighbours and from an internal terror threat. This has created the demand for comprehensive and imaginative solutions to counter act the ever-evolving threats.

Israel’s security services are, therefore, globally recognised as being at the forefront of counter terror measures.

‘Survival’ has unfortunately become ‘a way of life’ for people being living in Israel. The need for self-protection has resulted in the popularity of martial arts amongst the civilian population. National service is mandatory for both men and women.

Krav Maga was developed by the Israel Defence Force as a self-defence and fighting system derived from a combination of techniques: boxing, wrestling, Aikido, judo, and karate, realistic fight training. This refined technique of self-defence is, arguably, the best in the world.

The IKF was co-founded in 1998 by Lt. Col (Res) Chaim Peer who enjoyed a distinguished career in Israel’s most elite counter terror unit, Sayeret Matkal. Chaim’s challenge was to develop Krav Maga into an advanced set of protocols that could be used by Special Forces units and be fully adaptable to a variety of threats. Chaim named this set of evolving protocols ‘Kapap’.

Today, the IKF operates around the Globe through a network of Close Quarter Battle (CQB) combat clubs. Our CQB clubs focus on raising the standards for Civilian training. Our highly trained instructors can adapt programmes to suit male or female students and those with physical or mental disabilities.
